I purchased this program not too long ago, and want to love it, but it keep crashing on me! GRRRR.... Any other users have this problem? I'm thinking I might have to purchase Lightroom afterall if I can't get it figured out.

Also, would love to hear what everyone thinks of this program overall?? I'm a newbie, and have Lightroom Beta downloaded, and AS. I'm not sure Lightroom does much more?

TIA!

Lightroom has the Clarity slider (for local contrast enhancement) which AP doesn't have, despite requests to Bibble Labs, the original creators of the program. It might be possible to reproduce this with a sharpening plugin, using the regular sharpening set to 1 to 2 pixels radius, and the plugin set to something more like 20-40. But if you don't need Clarity, you don't need Lightroom. Besides, Adobe Camera Raw has a Clarity slider.

Anyway, I have been using the program on and off (more off than on) since I bought Bibble version 4 and got the free upgrade to version 5 (had to pay for AP, though, albeit with a discount). I haven't had it crash so far, but I only use the Linux version now and again to save having to reboot into Windows.

The only thing I can suggest is that you ask in the Corel Aftershot Pro forumexternal link. If you're using 64-bit Windows 7, there's a threadexternal link there that might interest you.

Not had many crashes with AfterShot. The ones I've had has been plugin related. Check the Corel aftershot forum and also upgrade any installed plugins if any.
